Has anyone put together an analysis of ICO's and how they perform 30, 60, 90, etc. days out?

Here is a Github repo that has a lot of the available white papers: https://github.com/masonicGIT/ico-whitepapers

My thoughts are around a scoring system, based off of a few variables:

-Soft cap
-Hard cap
-Team
-Number of tokens and distribution strategy
-Country of founding team
-Industry
-Etc.

What commonalities do successful projects have?

Are there projects that have had an ICO, but are still undervalued?

How many are overvalued? With the industry experiencing such growth, would it be better to go with projects that are trying for base hits...rather than the home run. A base hit in the current environment surpasses a HR in all other industries.

I would like to see someone take 100 tons of marijuana, preserve it in a vault.

Then use the net value of that to "back" their ICO in the way that fiat currencies are backed by gold in fort knox, etc.

There doesn't seem to be much originality or real effort being made in the ICO sector to fully realize the potential there.

I love the thought process, but the U.S dollar is no longer backed by gold. It is propped up, in a way. But, far from backed.

I agree that the potential in the blockchain and ICO space is astronomical.

One good thing about backing a coin with marijuana is it is renewable and carries tangible value.

        Economics of an ICO?

        I'm speaking more to the analysis of an ICO and then correlating that to increases in price, when the token hits an exchange. I know that a longitudinal study is hard because the industry is so young. However, we do have a decent dataset to begin the process.

      • Write a whitepaper
      • Publish the whitepaper
      • Get money
